"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage."- Roald Dahl
In Second Quarter our focus will be on analyzing literature and the writer's craft by looking at the literary elements the writer used in dystopian short stories and novels.
The students completed their argument essay which is due hey must have the entire argument essay typed by Monday October 27 or Tuesday October 28. They have recieved a checklist for what it requires and the rubric that I will use to evaluate their essay. We will continue to study conjunctions in order to know how to write and punctuate simple, compound, and complex sentences.
This week we will review what the literary elements writers use to craft narratives as well as read to find them in short stories we read. Finally, the students will receive this quarters book choices. Some students will be required to read just one book while others will be required to read two books.
Thank you for all of your communication and support. I appreciate all that you do to help your child be successful.
